Unhappy Software index is broken


While Firefox remind me to install missing plugins, I did so.
I choose "Adobe Flash Player(installer)", then this error occurred, and some more information as:
"This is a major failure of your software management system. Please check for broken packages with synaptic, check the file permissions and correctness of the file '/etc/apt/sources.list' and reload the software information with: 'sudo apt-get update' and 'sudo apt-get install -f'."
Anyone can help?Thanks!

Ok hope you can get this! The fault that is being put out to you there, is actually telling you what to do! Some of it will take some time, go grab a coffee!

Thanks!
Issues have been resolved, just after remove the kdelibs5 In synaptic. Is it because there is unsolved dependence which resulting in the back of a series of errors?

hmm, not sure what kdelibs5 is for, but most likely you are correct! kdelibs5 may have had unresolved dependencies, but you can probably reinstall the library using

apt-get install

and see if it resolves the dependency issue. it's a bit of a 'suck it and see' approach, hopefully it works out for you. I dare say, you may find other issues crop up for you if you do not reinstall kdelibs5.

hope it goes well for you!

Thanks for remind me
I'm studying QT3, this dependencies problem occured while
"sudo apt-get install kdevelop kdevelop-doc"
KDE4 requires kdelibs5, but for QT3 it's not necessary.
I'm waiting for the issue occure before "subo apt-get install", maybe in that way I can learn more
